Chlorine is widely used in making many
everyday products, but most notably, it is
used for producing safe drinking water all
over the world. Even the smallest water
supplies are now usually chlorinated. It is
also extensively used in the production
of paper products, dyestu's, textiles,
petroleum products, medicines, antiseptics,
insecticides, food, solvents, paints, plastics,
and many other consumer products. Most
of the chlorine produced is used in the
manufacture of chlorinated compounds
for sanitation, pulp bleaching, disinfectants,
and textile processing.
The HI96701 meter measures the free
chlorine (Cl2) content in water samples in
the 0.00 to 5.00 mg/L (ppm) range.
The HI96762 meter was specially developed
to measure low concentrations of free
chlorine in drinking water.
